Mysteriously absent tonight
Not relevant. They don't do replays for fouls....
Spartans ...committed to bring Paul Bunyan home in 2013.
They do so
It's the CBS Duke illuminati new world order at work.
Only if they think it might be flagrant. Are you seeing a bunch of flagrant fouls out there?
Replays regularly get used to see if a call was good or not. Announcers never questioned calls that went Duke's way and thus replays didn't appear.
I think he means the television broadcast.
Not a review by the refs.
No foul replay when it may go against Duke.....only traveling calls that should have gone in Duke's favor.
The worst officiated NCAA tournament game. The touch fouls killed the pace of the game. FUCK YOU REFS.
I'd love to see a replay of the Costello foul before the ball was across half court.
Then again, what's the point of hearing Kellogg say "yes, good call" every time they do show one.
Also got the vaunted "duke defends without fouling" from Greg Anthony.
yep, there is the confusion.
Biggest irritation of the game? CBS showed ZERO replays of the B2B OFF foul calls on Nix&Costello. BIG turning point in the 2nd half......
I was just about to post this too. I would have liked to have seen how legit the calls were since they happened off camera.
28 fouls called in the aecond half - this should be viewed as an aberration. Absolutely horrible for a tournament game. Hard to believe anyone would find this acceptable.
UF is getting a ton of touch calls too. FGCU just isn't supposed to win this game. If the NCAA isn't somewhat fixed then the refs just suck...
Love how Kellogg went off for two minutes about the Trice call but said nothing when Curry traveled over and over again. And Sulaimon had 14 free throws. The whole MSU team had 24...
Plumlee had several running shots that were actually travels
CBS is the worst TV network in the world. TV for old people and terrible sports coverage.
The BTN student covered games are better.
I swear, after Plumlee got his third, it's like the refs got together and said, "Let's start calling the most ticky tack shit we can think of, just to F with these teams." It's like the teams were making it too good of a game, and the refs wanted their time to shine. Unfortunately, as the more physical team, that's going to hurt us more. Just horrid inconsistency. One minute they're letting a lot go, the next they're calling every cheap shit they can, even on Duke.
I too was screaming about the lack of replays.
Just a perplexing game all together. It seemed like we were playing street ball with the lack of offensive sets. I was pleasantly surprised about the lack of duke flopping going on (overall). I was more surprised at all the touch bs fouls. I was even more surprised at the obvious fouls that weren't called (both ways). Definitely screwed with the flow of the game.
In the end, curry going off and Harris going cold was the difference.

Almost 1.5 per minute, or basically a foul every possession.

THIS!!!!! I came on tonight for the sole purpose of starting or searching for this thread. I have no idea if the calls were legitimate or absolute horse shit......why don't I know??? Because despite back to back offensive fouls called on msu with the ball never crossing half court none of the actions that led to fouls was ever shown. Now granted I was at the bar, so I missed some of the action but I swear they came late out of the TV timeout and got only 2-3 seconds of the 5 second call on MSU right before that. Then they showed 6 seconds of the Duke inbound attempt followed by time-out after that and I am stunned that I was not removed from the bar. INFURIATING!!!
The NCAA IS somewhat fixed and the refs just suck.

Hated that the officials made it all about them in the 2nd. Hated even more that CBS never showed a replay of any of those calls. After that graphic came up with the fouls (0-MSU, 3-Duke), there was a flurry of calls in about 2 minutes and we never got to see a one of them. This board loves to hate on ESPN all the time but you would've got to see what exactly was called during the stoppage most every time. There was almost dougle digit fouls called in about 4 minutes and we never got to see any of them.
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
Weird. The broadcast i saw showed replays of both those plays. They weren't legit. Both Nix and Costello did the deed, but it was very incidental, a normal post-up positioning thing that happens on most every play, and Plumlee flopped. Refs fell for it. I can't see how. Do they not watch tape and see how they're being made fools of by this flopping around? It's the same players that do it every time, and it doesn't take a microscope to see it.
I thought so to.
I think about the hard fouls that sent Nix, Harris and Appling to the deck. They were intentional. In baseball if a team throws at the batter, one if their hitters gets plunked. The refs have to control that behavior. It is interesting that the announcers did not pick up on those fouls or notice that there was more than one hard foul.
Clear favor to Duke from the officials it seemed, but they were also crafty enough to mix in no calls on a Payne goaltend and Trice travel call. We knew this would come down to two things; how tickytack the stripes were calling the game and if Duke was on from three. Unfortunately both happened
